BofA/Merrill downgraded SanDisk two notches to Underperform from Buy and lowered its price target to $40 from $75. The firm is more cautious on the memory chip sector given new developments of SK Group's "significantly higher capex budget" and Micron's unexpected FY16 capex hike. BofA/Merrill said excess capacity is now a concern and cut long-term earnings estimates for most memory chip stocks.

11:11 EDTSNDKAnalysts split on Micron after analyst day
Analysts were divided on the outlook for flash memory product maker Micron (MU) following its analyst day. Wells Fargo upgraded the stock to Market Perform from Underperform and Piper Jaffray said that the stock was unlikely to drop much further. However, Bank of America/Merrill and Wedbush cut their rating on the shares to Neutral from Buy. UPGRADE: Wells Fargo upgraded Micron to Market Perform from Underperform. Following the stock's decline over the last few months, the shares "reflect a more realistic view" of the flash memory sector's outlook, the firm stated. Additionally, the sector's financial condition has improved in recent years, which should boost the sector's profits and margins over the longer term, Wells Fargo stated. However, the firm still believes that the company is facing several risks, including falling prices for DRAM, a widespread form of flash memory, and its rising capital spending. Although Micron is facing "challenging near-term conditions," including a weak PC market, the company outlined many positive aspects of its business, according to Piper Jaffray analyst Ruben Roy. The longer term trends for the flash memory sector remain positive, as consolidation, low supply growth and diversifying demand should increase the profits of suppliers, Roy believes. And although Micron said its capital spending would be above expectations, Roy expects these investments to help the company enhance its manufacturing process and efficiency, boosting its performance over the longer term. Micron may miss estimates in the short-term but its share price is unlikely to drop much further, and its performance should improve significantly next year, according to Roy. He kept an Overweight rating on the stock. BEARISH TAKE: The DRAM supply/demand dynamic probably won't improve and Micron's cost reductions probably won't outpace price declines until mid-2016, according to Wedbush analyst Betsy Van Hees. Although Van Hees believes that the company's spending will help it over the longer term, she forecast that the stock would "continue to struggle" until the DRAM supply/demand dynamic stabilizes. The analyst cut her price target on the name to $19 from $26. Micron's decision to raise its capital spending suggests that it is "overconfident" in its new chips, according to Bank of America/Merrill Lynch analyst Simon Dong-je Woo. The margins on the new chip "could easily" be negative, the analyst believes. Woo thinks that Micron's capital expenditures next year should be $3B-$4B versus the company's guidance of $5.3B-$5.8B. The analyst's target on the name fell to $19 from $28.40. PRICE ACTION: In late morning trading, Micron lost 0.2% to $17. Earlier the stock reached a new 52-week low of $16.12. The shares of another flash memory product maker, SanDisk (SNDK), were flat at $58.
